Presenter: Bessel van der Kolk, MD
Bessel van der Kolk, MD wrote the book on trauma. Join your colleagues as he shares his knowledge and insights at this premier conference. Beginning with an examination of neuroscience research showing how children learn to regulate their arousal systems and focus on what is most relevant, Dr. van der Kolk will examine how trauma, abuse and neglect derail these processes and affect brain development. He will explain how fixation on the trauma and learned helplessness require interventions aimed at restoring active mastery and the capacity to attend to the here-and-now. With the aid of videotaped demonstrations and experiential demonstrations of affect regulation techniques, he will examine the role of body oriented therapies, neurofeedback, yoga, theater, IFS and EMDR in resolving the traumatic past and discuss the integration of these approaches during different stages of treatment.
Participants will learn...
- Recent developments in the treatment of PTSD, and the effects that they have been shown to have on the recovery of traumatized individuals.
- Techniques of physical mastery, affect regulation and memory processing.
- How mind and brain process trauma, and its lasting traces on multiple psychological and biological processes.
